“Bright Lights, Big City done gone to my baby’s head,” is a blues song by Jimmy Reed. If you are like me, somewhere along the line you had a break up that left you dazed and confused, hearing Jimmy’s song lets you know that there was someone who understood, could relate, and help you make sense of it all.
When it comes to big cities, big data, and big time analytics, Michael Jansen and his team at City Zenith, understand, relate and can help city managers and planners make sense of the massive amounts of information and data that go into making a city run smoothly and efficiently.
We had the good fortune to catch up with Michael at the 2016 Realcomm|IBcon conference. Michael made a presentation that left me feeling a new sense of hope for how IoT and innovative companies like City Zenith can solve many of the problems that plague us today.
This quote gives you an idea of how these guys roll:
The global Smart City market has moved from slideware to implementation on the back of the IoT. Cityzenith is the lens that allows cities the ability to turn data into information giving insight resulting in impact and has created a Strategic Advisory Council of some of the foremost thinkers in this arena.
